Build a simple music player with React

React is a popular JavaScript library for building user interfaces, and in this tutorial I'm going to show you how to use it to build a simple interactive music player. We're going to be working in CodePen, and you could also write this project offline inside a React app, since all the components can be ported to a repo pretty easily. 

We're going to explore props, state and how components work together and communicate with each other inside the React ecosystem. We're also using Font Awesome, so make sure that's included inside your CodePen CSS panel.
